Homemade Chocolate Chip Mint Cookies

Ok guys the lovely ladies at Nibmor sent us some chocolate to test out in our recipes… apparently they thought we were favoring the vegetables… but you guys know us… we like our carrots AND our chocolate;)

We’ve been totally buying into their philosophy of “Daily Dose”…a little chocolate everyday does the body good… Tis’ The Season, right?

But seriously, onto the recipe: Homemade Mini Chocolate Chip Mint Cookies…YUM.

Homemade Chocolate Chip Mint Cookies

For these cookies we use Nibmor’s Daily Dose mint chocolates. I really liked how they turned out, as well as this concept…

By using a dark chocolate bar instead of baking chips we get a higher cacao content and less sugar. This is great because traditional cookies contain sugar in the recipe but we don’t account for the sugar in the chocolate. Needless to say these are cookies you can feel good about eating… or perhaps packing in lunchboxes, aren’t they cute:)

        Hi Loyann,

        Coconut Nectar is a low glycemic sweetener. It comes from the sap of a coconut tree. Its full of amino acids,vitamins and minerals. It can be found at most health food stores. It’s very tasty but also very sticky;)
